Database Maintenance

This section provides information about the storage system that GFI EventsManager uses to store processed events. This system allows great scalability with its fast read/write capabilities; even when processing high volumes of data. To help you maintain your database backend, GFI EventsManager provides you with dedicated maintenance job options.

Database maintenance jobs provide advanced functionality to administrators, allowing them to:

  • Centralize events collected by other remote GFI EventsManager instances into one database backend
  • Optimize GFI EventsManager performance by actively controlling database backend growth hence keeping it in good shape
  • Import and export data to and from older versions of GFI EventsManager without data inconsistencies.
  • Import and export events to and from a storage folder minimizing data loads from the database.
